Physical and Technical Energy Problems

The paper presents an overview of brushless electric motors used in hand electric tools and household appliances. Analysis of the motor types has shown that synchronous reluctance motors are the most reliable for lowpower drives of such tools and appliances due to their simple design, long service life and low cost of production. Solutions are proposed for significant decrease in the quadrature-axis magnetic flux of the synchronous reluctance motor. The motors are shown to develop the specific electromagnetic torque up to 0.35÷0.4 Nm/kg.
